Krone Extends Drop Versus Dollar, Euro as Norges Bank Cuts Rate

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Norwegian krone extended declines against the dollar and euro after the nation’s central bank cut its benchmark interest rate by a quarter of a percentage point to 1.5 percent.

The krone depreciated 1.3 percent to 5.7735 per dollar at 1:04 p.m. London time, after falling to 5.7830, the weakest since Feb. 16. The currency fell 1.2 percent to 7.5472 per euro.

The decision was forecast by two of 16 economists surveyed by Bloomberg, while the remaining 14 predicted no change.
